- I just said hi.
- Hi. Hello. Hi.
-Okay if I sit closer?
-How far are you going?
-Uh, Rockville Center.
-Get out! Me too!
-What are the odds? Do I know you? Do you ever shop at Barnes & Noble?
-I've seen you, man!
-Book slave there for, like, five years now.
-Ah. I would have thought I would've remembered you.
Jesus! Is it five years?
-It might be the hair.
-It changes a lot...The color.That's why you might not recognize me.It's called Blue Ruin, the color.
-Snappy name, huh?
-I like it.
-Anyway, this company makes a whole line of colors with equally snappy names. Red... Red Menace, Yellow Fever, Green Revolution.That'd be a job, coming up with those names.
-You think there could possibly be a job like that? I mean, how many hair colors could there be? Fifty, maybe.
-Someone's got that job.Agent Orange! I came up with that one. I apply my personality in a paste.
-Oh, I doubt that very much.
-Well, you don't know me, so...you don't know, do you?
-Sorry. I was just...I'm trying to be nice.
-Yeah. I got it. My name's Clementine, by the way.
-Hi, Joel. Hey no jokes about my name. Oh, no, you wouldn't do that.You're trying to be nice
-I don't know any jokes about your name.
-I don't know what that means.
-Huckleberry Hound? What are you, nuts?
-It's been suggested.
-Oh, my darlin', oh, my darlin' Oh, my darlin' Clementine
You were lost and gone forever dreadful sorry Clementine
-I'm sorry. Just... It's a pretty name, though. It really is nice.
It's, uh...It means "merciful."Right? Clemency?
-Although it hardly fits.I'm a vindictive little bitch, truth be told.
-Gee, l-I wouldn't think that about you.
-Why wouldn't you think that about me?
-I don't know.I just...I don't know. I just, uh...You seem nice, so...
-Oh, now I'm nice? Oh, God. Don't you know any other adjectives? I don't need "nice." I don't need myself to be it, and I don't need anybody else to be it at me.
-Joel?, It's Joel, right?
-I'm sorry I yelled at you. I'm a little out of sorts today.
My embarrassing admission is, I really like that you're nice right now. I mean, I can't tell from one moment to the next what I'm gonna like, but right now...I'm glad you are.

I don't know who you are, Henry...
but I dream about you almost every night. Why?
What would you say if I told you that notebook you read every
day used to have a lot of stuff about me in it?
I would say that that makes a lot of sense.
You erased me from your memories
because you thought you were
holding me back from having a full and happy life.
But you made a mistake.
Being with you is the only way
I could have a full and happy life.
You're the girl of my dreams... and apparently,
I'm the man of yours.

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.

Hello. Hello. Why are you hiding back there? You don't have to hide from me. I'm Peg Boggs. I'm your local Avon representative and I'm as harmless as cherry pie.
(Peg sees Edward's scissorhands.)
Oh my! I can see that I've disturbed you. How stupid of me! I'll just be going now.
Oh my! What happened to you?
I'm not finished.
Uh, put those down. Don't come any closer. Just please... Those are your hands? Those are your hands. What happened to you? Where are your parents? Hum... Your mother? Your father?
He didn't wake up.
Are you alone? Do you live up here all by yourself? What happened to your face? Hum, you know, I won't hurt you. But at the very least let me give you a good astringent and this will help to prevent infection. What's your name?
Edward? I think you should just come home with me.

I have seen all, I have heard all, I have forgotten all.
Courage! I have shown it for years; think you I shall lose it at the moment when my sufferings are to end?
I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long.
Let them eat cake.
No one understands my ills, nor the terror that fills my breast, who does not know the heart of a mother.
Fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head
Though I see
The danger there
If there's a chance for me
Then I don't care
Fools rush in
Where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know?
When we met
I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
Oh, open up your heart and let
This fool rush in

Es una novela de terror publicada en 1986 por el escritor estadounidense Stephen King. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de chicos que son aterrorizados por un malvado monstruo -al que llaman «Eso»- que es capaz de cambiar de forma, alimentándose del terror que produce en sus víctimas.
Los hechos acontecen en la comunidad de Derry, en el estado de Maine, Estados Unidos. Bajo la ciudad, a un nivel inconsciente para todos los pobladores, un monstruo despiadado de apetito insaciable atormenta a la comunidad desde tiempos remotos. Este monstruo es un ser de otro mundo, capaz de leer las mentes y provocar los miedos, los cuales constituyen su alimento (preferiblemente los de los niños, cuyos miedos son muy sencillos de elaborar). Su disfraz más común es el de un payaso, llamado Pennywise, el payaso bailarín, con el que atrae a sus jóvenes víctimas, a las cuales aterrará hasta la muerte. Una vez saciado su apetito, duerme durante casi tres decenios, hasta que vuelve a despertar para alimentarse y hartarse, cumpliendo así un ciclo sin fin.
El primer encuentro (en 1958) sucede cuando son preadolescentes, asustados y aparentemente indefensos, pero con una poderosa capacidad de imaginar; unidos por sus lazos de amistad, reúnen la fuerza para enfrentarse a Eso y detener su ataque. Para lograrlo, lo enfrentan en su guarida; una vieja red de cloacas bajo la ciudad. En esta guarida, el monstruo toma la forma de una araña gigante y resulta gravemente herida, aunque logra escapar. Entonces, los chicos hacen un pacto: Si Eso regresa, ellos también lo harán. Eventualmente todos, excepto Mike, se van del pueblo y continúan con sus vidas. Inclusive, empiezan a perder los recuerdos de su infancia.
El segundo encuentro ocurre en 1985, cuando son adultos con vidas aparentemente plenas; sin embargo han perdido el poder de la imaginación. Pero cuando los ataqueps a los niños empiezan a ocurrir, Mike los convoca para que vuelvan a Derry. Al final, después de enfrentarse a sus peores temores, el grupo de amigos habrá de afrontar un último desafío, un trato: basta con que dejen vivir a Eso para que éste les conceda una larguísima vida, repleta de éxito, fortuna y todo lo que puedan desear. Sabiendo que es un engaño, le hacen frente en los más oscuros túneles, alcantarillas y cuevas de Derry, donde logran destruirlo, aunque todos y cada uno de ellos tendrán que pagar un alto precio.
Eso aparentemente se originó en un vacío cercano al Universo, un lugar al que en la novela llaman «Macrocosmos». El nombre real de Eso (si es que tiene nombre) es desconocido, aunque en varios puntos de la historia, se hace llamar «Pennywise» o «Bob Gray». Asimismo, la verdadera forma de Eso nunca ha sido vista. En su guarida subterránea, toma forma de araña gigante; sin embargo, su forma verdadera existe en un mundo muy lejano al físico, que el mismo monstruo llama «Fuegos fatuos».
Eso llegó a la Tierra en un enorme cataclismo muy similar a un impacto de asteroide, que se estrelló donde millones de años después se levantaría el pueblo de Derry. Una vez que los humanos empezaron a asentarse en ese territorio, el monstruo despertó, empezó a alimentarse y adoptó un ciclo de hibernación por un largo período, despertando aproximadamente cada 30 años. Cuando Eso despierta ocurre una gran ola de violencia, y otra gran ola de violencia ocurre cuando vuelve a dormir:
* En 1990 se estrenó un telefilme de tres horas y trece minutos de duración, dirigido por Tommy Lee Wallace y presentando a Tim Curry como Pennywise. En esta versión se omitieron todos los detalles de sexualidad, violencia y gore explícitos, ya que estaba destinada al público televisivo.
* Según un reporte de Variety en marzo de 2009, la Warner Bros. se encontraría preparando una nueva versión cinematográfica de la novela, en co-producción con Lin Pictures y Vertigo Entertainment. La línea de tiempo de tal adaptación se trasladaría al periodo entre la década de 1980 y la actualidad, para cubrir el fatídico periodo de veintitantos años. Además, esta versión estaría "muy apegada" a la historia original, y sería clasificación "C" o "Restringida". El guión correrá a cargo de Dave Kajganich, aunque aún no hay ni director ni reparto. Parece ser que Tim Curry no repetirá como Pennywise.
My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love.The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you. Noah

Clementine is an unusual name, and almost in a bid to appear worthy of such a rare moniker, she engineers a persona to match. She dies her hair crazy colours and wears some truly awful clothes, but it’s all superficial.
When she first meets Joel (Jim Carrey) the man she will fall in love with, she seeks to inform him of her kookiness in a typically self-deprecating way, as though she can’t help being so goddamned crazy: “Look, I'm sorry if I came off a little nutso, I'm not really.” Joel sees through this and let’s her know it, but though she complains that “guys think I’m a concept”, it is actually a myth that she looks to maintain. She wants to be considered eccentric and weird, as it as her opportunity to be special.
Despite claims to the contrary, she does care what the world thinks of her and it is this huge internal contradiction that ironically, helps make Clementine so appealing. She quizzes Joel if she is ugly – a silly question considering he is her boyfriend by this stage, and yet she desperately needs to hear his answer. She can act tough, shouting the house down and swearing like a trooper, but she is also fragile and riddled with insecurities. These opposites are often packaged together, but unusually, Clementine never looks to suppress them. She is open about her personal issues and happily tells Joel that “I'm an open book. I tell you everything, every damn, embarrassing thing.”
It is her faults and her honest acceptance of these that make us like her all the more. She is ridiculously fickle, has the attention span of a small child and is high-maintenance, and yet these are all traits that she admits to and never looks to change. The hair and wacky clothes might be one way she tries to express her personality, but her true self always shines through, never to be denied. She is self-aware and confident in her limitations, but this inner knowledge of her lesser qualities never makes her withdrawn, apologetic or sad. Instead, she opts to be the life and soul of every party.
“I apply my personality in a paste” she cheerily declares, and though the film focuses more on the story of Joel, it is Clementine who makes the biggest impression. Kate Winslet’s performance as Clementine was voted one of the greatest of all time by Premiere magazine, and it would be churlish to argue. Clementine is noisy and cheery, smiling her way through the film as someone you feel you could know. She is approachable and chatty, so friendly in fact that it is due to her randomly introducing herself to Joel on a train, that their romance begins. When their relationship turns sour, Joel complains that “constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating”, but it is her extroverted exuberance that colours the entire film.
But talk of contradictions, honesty and pushiness suggest a down-to-earth character very much mired in reality. This would be wrong. Clementine is whimsical, romantic and impulsive (Joel: “That's what I love about you”), with a luminous childlike wonder, most evident when the circus unexpectedly comes to town. When she desperately tries to recreate the magic she once felt with Joel, with new man Patrick, she wants to go dancing one moment and then visit the frozen Charles the next.
Clementine injects fun into Joel’s humdrum existence and despite denouncing herself as “just a f**ked-up girl who's lookin' for my own piece of mind”, we come to love her – faults and all.

SI. Podría unir mi vida uniendo casualidades.

Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...
...and an athlete...
...and a basket case...
...and a criminal...
Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

The best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are.
Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the sun shines out your ass.
That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with.
